A/E/C Graphics Standard: Release 2.1


Stephen C. Spangler


The A/E/C Graphics Standard has been developed by the Computer-Aided Design/Building Information Modeling (CAD/BIM) Technology Center to document how proper hand-drafting practices can be achieved in BIM, Civil Information Modeling (CIM), and CAD. It is through the collection and documentation of these practices that consistent models and drawings shall be achieved throughout the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), as well as other federal agencies. In the collection of these practices, various historical USACE District drafting manuals were consulted and compared against practices contained in various industry and national standards. The documentation of these practices will help to achieve both clear and aesthetically pleasing construction documents.
